In order to match developments such as Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT), Kendrion Kuhnke Automation now optionally provides its automation devices with wireless data interfaces. The first product is the new, scalable Kuhnke FIO Controller WL that offers modular expandability.
It is able to connect to any available WiFi infrastructure, but can also be set up as an access point with DHCP. The range of the WiFi functionality can be improved considerably by connecting the controller to an antenna that can be attached externally. Protocols like FTP Modbus and MQTT are available to allow safe and innovative visualisations via tablets or smartphones.
